ISPS HANDA BRITISH BLIND GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP

Cameron McDiarmid believes he’s been rewarded for the hard work he’s put into his game after recently becoming the new ISPS Handa British Blind Golf champion.


McDiarmid, who is the starter at Dalmahoy, the Edinburgh-based Marriott Hotel and Country Club, shot impressive nett scores of 71 and 69 around the Montgomery Course at Kinross to take the title in a highly competitive field of more than 50.

Just one stroke separated the eight-handicapper and second-placed Peter Osborne, with Israel’s Zohar Sharon finishing a further shot back in third.

And McDiarmid, whose visual impairment falls under the B3 classification for those with have partial sight with visual acuity from 2/60 to 6/60, was understandably delighted to have won the prestigious title.

“I’m over the moon with my performance,” he said. “I’ve put time into developing my game in recent years so it’s nice to see some reward for that hard work. I’m already looking forward to the prospect of defending my title next year.”

The Championship, covered this year by both the BBC and Scottish news, brings together all of the most talented visually impaired golfers from around the UK.

And his success also didn’t go unnoticed at Dalmahoy, where director of golf Alan Tait was quick to pay tribute to McDiarmid’s performance.

“Cameron works hard at his golf, does a great job in the starter’s lodge and is extremely popular with our members,” said Alan. “I'm personally extremely proud of him and his achievements on the golf course.”
